Candidates must have a working knowledge of appropriate literature for their program(s), as well as the ability to demonstrate effective and efficient rehearsal technique and time management. Indian Hill Music faculty members are responsible for: 1) inspiring and sharing their love of music with their students; 2) setting a high bar for students’ levels of technical skill and musicality; 3) clearly communicating expectations and working toward shared goals; and 4) advocating, as appropriate, for their students to engage in additional IHM programs to deepen their musical development and their commitment to their studies. Indian Hill offers many ancillary benefits to our faculty members, including the potential for a variety of paid professional performance opportunities and funding for professional development (by application).
